I have a 94 mustang with a cobra rear and 02 gt front brakes.
Can anyone tell me what I need in order to install 13" rotors?

Thank You

So you are looking to upgrade to the 13" brakes from a cobra then? If so just order a conversion kit that has everythying you need.

Im assuming you mean 13" up front. Then you will need Cobra Calipers (usually come with caliper brakets, make sure), 13" Cobra Rotors and new lines I suggest SS lines. I bought it all seperate and it worked out to be the best price, got it all from the same place too.

Thanks for the replies. I was under the impression that I can use
13" rotors with the gt calipers.

not that I know of for the front, I know I got a baer 13" rear kit that works with stock calipers but it comes with new caliper brackets to move the rotor up farther.

No because the caliper mounting bolts do not allow the clearance for a 13" rotor.

Yes it does, I would use any good caliper paint and then take a fine file to the 'Cobra' lettering would be your best bet, unless you wanna try to mask off just the "cobra" writing plus after it will be nice and shiny too :)

you can 99 up GTs have duel piston calipers just like the cobras you might need a bracket to raise your caliper up some
